CropSafe is building the operating system for the millions of farms that feed the world’s population. Our financial & operational tools allow farmers to create and analyze the condition of their farm and its long-term implications via satellite & weather remote monitoring. Farmers have trouble interpreting masses of data, something that is the key to a more profitable farm. We’re aiming to make this process 10x easier and quicker.
